The outstanding success that the League of Friends has achieved in raising funds has enabled it to provide a significant number of gifts to the hospital. In 2023 a fantastic £244k was spent on funding a huge variety of equipment for the hospital.  The table below lists gifts pledged in 2023, which shows just how varied these items can be. Each item will have been requested by the ward or department in question because of the great benefit it would bring to patients, visitors and staff. 

The 2024 deadlines for gift requests are 10 June, 2 September and 4 November. A link for the procurement portal to request charitable funding can be obtained from: .
